M*A*S*H - Where Do I Live?
On the episode that Radar tries to mail back a jeep to Iowa, Hawkeye is writing a letter home to his dad. In his writing he is talking about how cold it must be in Vermont. He always gloated about being from Crabapple Cove, Maine, right?
WRONG!! In the episode where Hawkeye's father calls BJ in the middle of the night because he thinks Hawkeye is dead, Pierce says, "We have a summer cottage in Crabapple Cove, Maine."

Hawkeye was definitely from Maine. In one episode Klinger trades a salami for a National Geographic(?) with pictures of Maine's coastline for Hawkeye.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, in the first or second 'letter home' episode Hawkeye says something like 'Kiss Mom for me' before it was later decided that his father would be a widower.

When Col. Potter was referring to Nebraska, I believe he was talking about his son who lives there. In the episode when his son's wife was pregnant and about to have the baby, he tried to call a hospital in Nebraska to find out if the baby was a boy or girl.

Where would y'all say Col. Potter is from? Some episodes have him talking about Hannibal, MO. In other episodes, he waxes sentimental about "standing on my front porch back in Nebraska." M*A*S*H's final episode has him talking about going out to the cornfield and eating the corn fresh off the stalk. This image is more Nebraskan than Missourian, tho' Missouri also grows corn.Is he a Show-Me State guy or a Cornhusker?

Hawkeye was from Crabapple cove, As for Henry calling his wife by different names, I believe it only happened when he was just woken up, or when he was wounded in "army navy game"

In the episode "The Late Hawkeye Pierce", season 4, Hawkeye says that his family has a summer home in Crabapple Cove, Maine. Vermont is their home the rest of the year. So they live in both places.

Maine & Vermont are not exactly located within each other, don't forget that New Hampshire lies between them and they are actually located to the East of New York

Ok ppl watch the lost episodes HEHEHEHE Hawkeye comes from Crabapple COve Maine, His mother seems to have died after Hawkeye joined the Army cause spoke of her at least once as being alive. His Father moved to Virginia and in fact alot of Hawkeye's family lives in Virginia. Last night I was watching the episode where BJ's friend got him in trouble and arrested. Hawkeye asked the practical joker to call his Aunt in Virginia. In fact a whole book could be written on each of the characters only using the biographical material from the show. I didn't care much for the Blake years myself. But I do remember the episode where he said Kiss Mom for me

Hawkeye is one of the few main characters whose hometown we never learn. It could be assumed that he is from Vermont, since in the episode "For Want of a Boot" he asks to be sent back to his old shoe store in Vermont. However, in the episode "Welcome to Korea," he asks a group of soldiers on the road if any of them is from Maine, and one says "Vermont," and he replies "Close, but no cigar." He does comment once that they have a summer home in Crabapple Cove, but never actually refers to anywhere as his hometown. As for his mother - He tells Radar that his mother died when he was a child. Also, in the movie that precedes the series, Hawkeye, to a passing reporter who asks if he wants to say "Hi" to his mom, comments that his mother is dead. Many people talk to their parents and spouses who have passed on as if they were still alive. This could easily explain his remark in a letter home asking his Dad to "Kiss Mom, and Sis."

"Sophie" the horse never appears to be the same horse twice. Sometimes brown, sometimes chestnut, the blaze down the front of her face always looks different, etc. and yes, most of the time "she" appears to actually be a gelding. When Radar and the docs first capture her and bring her back to camp, they refer to the horse as being a "he" but in every subsequent episode, "she" is a mare.
